"According to another top official also involved with the program, the 
NSA made an enormous breakthrough several years ago in its ability to 
cryptanalyze, or break, unfathomably complex encryption systems employed 
by not only governments around the world but also many average computer 
users "

Hmmm - a breakthrough in factorisation? quantum computing? something
